Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Friday, May 26, 2018

Fresno 5, El Paso 0

W- Cy Sneed (5-2)
L- Walker Lockett (2-5)

Fresno home runs: Garrett Stubbs (1, solo in 1st), A.J. Reed (9, 2-run in 1st)

Cy Sneed and Reymin Guduan joined forces on a two-hit shutout on Friday.

Sneed allowed just two hits and struck out seven in eight innings of work while Guduan got a strikeout in a 1-2-3 9th inning. Sneed completed eight innings in a start for the second time in his career; he also threw eight shutout innings against Kane County on May 22, 2015, when he was a member of the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers.

A couple of early homers boosted the Grizzlies: Garrett Stubbs led off the 1st by launching a homer and A.J. Reed smacked a two-run shot later in the inning. Stubbs added a sac fly to his ledger in the 2nd, and Drew Ferguson ripped an RBI double in the 6th. Both of Ferguson's hits on Friday were doubles.

Mike Hauschild takes on Miguel Diaz in game two. First pitch is at 7:05 Pacific.

Tulsa 2, Corpus Christi 1 in 10 innings

W- Dylan Baker (3-2)
L- Riley Ferrell (1-2)
S- Brian Moran (2)

CC home runs: None.

The Hooks held the Drillers to four hits and tied the game with a run in the 8th... only to see Tulsa push their leadoff runner in the extra inning across. Corpus has dropped an extra-inning game for the second consecutive night. They had the bases loaded in the 10th but could not capitalize.

Josh Rojas ripped a double to lead off the 8th and Taylor Jones took his place at second after Jones brought him in for what turned out to be Corpus Christi's only run of the evening. Randy César finished 3-5 to extend his hitting streak to 18 games. Aníbal Sierra went 2-4 with a double out of the bottom of the order. Myles Straw singled and stole a base, his 30th of the season.

Cionel Perez went 4.2 innings and allowed a run on three hits, walked two, and struck out a career-high tying ten. It's the second time that Cionel has recorded double-digit strikeouts in an outing; he struck out ten for Quad Cities on May 22 last year.

The Ferrells tagged in to take over the rest of the way. Oklahoma Ferrell (Justin) allowed a hit and struck out five over 4.1 scoreless. Texas Ferrell (Riley) allowed the go-ahead run on a sac fly and struck out one in the 10th.

Framber Valdez gets the start for Corpus on Saturday. He'll face Logan Bawcom at 7:05.

Buies Creek 5, Lynchburg 1

W- Brandon Bailey (1-4)
L- Tanner Tully (2-4)

BC home runs: None.

The Carolina Stros got three runs in the 6th to gain some separation and got a nice outing from Brandon Bailey.

Bailey allowed four hits, walked two, and struck out four over six shutout innings. Kit Scheetz tagged in to throw two scoreless, allowing four hits and striking out two. The Hillcats spoiled the shutout in the 9th when they got a run off Ronel Blanco on an error following a single. Blanco allowed that one single, walked one, and struck out one in the final inning.

J.J. Matijevic, who was one of three Buies Creek players profiled by Jayne during her first visit with the club since they moved to North Carolina, opened the scoring with a sac fly in the 1st inning. This was the only scoring play of the game until the 6th; in the meantime, Lynchburg... remained stuck on zero runs.

Osvaldo Duarte and Ronnie Dawson led off the 6th with singles and Abraham Toro ripped a double to bring Duarte in. Dawson tried to score as well, but he was thrown out at the plate. Chas McCormick moved Toro over to third with a single and he moved into scoring position himself following a wild pitch. Luis Payano followed with a two-run single. Kristian Trompiz doubled to lead off the 7th and scored Buies Creek's final run of the night on a wild pitch. Dawson and Toro both went 2-4 on the night.

Jorge Alcala gets the start for Buies Creek in game two of this four-game weekend set. He'll go against Wes Morgan at 5:00 Eastern.

Quad Cities 3, Peoria 2

W- Peter Solomon (2-1)
L- Evan Guillory (4-3)
S- Tyler Ivey (2)

QC home runs: None.

Neither team scored more than one run in an inning, so Quad Cities won in the simplest method possible: by scoring in more innings than Peoria.

Jonathan Arauz hit a single with one out in the 1st and scored the first run of the night on Miguelangel Sierra's triple. Mike Papierski walked to lead off the 2nd and scored on a single from Roman Garcia. Arauz led off the 6th with a triple and scored on a single from Sierra.

Sierra's two hits drove in Arauz each time. After going hitless for the fourth straight game on May 20 against Beloit, which dropped his triple slash line to .252/.362/.435, Arauz has responded with a five-game hitting streak and has improved that line to .287/.388/.485 after this 3-4 performance.

Peter Solomon allowed a run on four hits, walked two, and struck out five in five innings of work. Tyler Ivey brought the Banditos home; he allowed an unearned run on three hits and struck out four over the last four innings.

The Banditos and Chiefs will play a doubleheader on Saturday, with game one beginning at 5:35. Yohan Ramirez will take on Paul Balestrieri in game one, while Cristian Javier takes the mound in game two against TBA.
